A good mother

I've been thinking lately...what does it take to be a good mother?

A good mother never gives up

A good mother is always brave

A good mother is strong because everyone around her needs her to be

A good mother is supportive, even when it's hard

So why will I be a good mom? Because mine taught me how.

No matter the miles between us, and for a lot of years, there were many...I always felt loved by my mother.

No matter what my choices in life were, her support never wavered. She never gave up on me, for a single second. Her wisdom and her compassion brought more to my life than anyone I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, or ever will, I'm quite certain.

She loved hard. So do I.

She was by far, the bravest and strongest women I know. Her courage and fight during her battle with cancer was simply inspiring.

I miss her. Today especially.

Happy Birthday, Mom. Thank you for teaching me, not to be the perfect mom, but to be the best mom.
